ISLAMABAD - The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) hostess who has gone missing in Toronto, Canada, was earlier suspended over smuggling allegations from the national airline.
Fareeha Mukhtar, hailing from Sialkot, was banned from all international flights including the US because she was caught smuggling currency and mobile phones to other countries.
